Seahawks Rumors: CB Richard Sherman Telling Seattle Teammates Goodbye

Her colleague Adam Schefter tweeted the details of the deal: "Here it goes: Seahawks are trading DE Michael Bennett and a seventh-round pick to Eagles for a fifth-round pick and WR Marcus Johnson, sources tell ESPN".

The team had no immediate comment on Sherman's situation, the Bennett news-or a report from the league-owned NFL Network that Sherman was to meet later Wednesday with Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider to discuss his future.

Bennett, 32, is due to earn $7.4m next season, the first of three remaining years on his contract, making him a poor fit for a Seattle team looking to get younger and cheaper on defense.

Bennett, who will be 33 in November, was hampered by knee and foot problems last season but still made the Pro Bowl.

Triathlete Henri Schoeman broke the news of the attack on his verified Twitter account and pledged his support for Gwala. A personal message to the athlete has been shared on Facebook by Nathalie Asensi-Verdu Crawford.

Bennett, 33, registered 8.5 sacks a year ago, despite dealing with knee injuries and a torn plantar fascia in his foot.

After taking a hometown discount to stay in Seattle, defensive lineman Michael Bennett is headed to Philadelphia. The Seahawks also only owed him $1.65 million in base salary for next season but had to pay out a $4 million roster bonus, per Spotrac. "I mean, whatever happens, I've loved being a Seahawk", Bennett told reporters on January 1. Bennett joins Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham and Derek Barnett as terrific pass rushers along the Eagles' defensive line.

Bennett was a leader in the NFL's player protest movement, including sitting for the national anthem prior to most games.

For his career, Bennett has 54 sacks, 210 tackles and eight forced fumbles in 293 games. "I want to play as long as I can", he said via NFL.com. He had just five receptions for 45 yards last season, but can provide Seattle with some insurance for fellow speedster Paul Richardson, who could leave in free agency.
